ReLEx SMILE Laser Technology
ReLEx SMILE Laser is a minimally invasive, bladeless type of keyhole laser eye surgery. Using state-of-the-art femtosecond technology, ReLEx SMILE involves creating a high-precision incision in the cornea. There is no flap, just a tiny incision.
ReLEx stands for Refractive Lenticule Extraction, and SMILE is short for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction. SMILE eye surgery can be used to treat short-sightedness both with and without astigmatism. This technique has similar benefits to more well-known techniques such as LASIK, but without the need for a corneal flap, which minimises the risk of complications.
How does it work?
First, your eyes are anaesthetised with eye drops, and an eyelid speculum is used to keep the eyes open during surgery. This may be a little uncomfortable at first but if you relax you’ll soon get used to it.
- Then the laser is used to make the small incision in the cornea. With impressive 3D accuracy, a series of pulses create bubbles less than 1/100th of the width of a human hair. By creating a small connecting tunnel, the surgeon is then able to remove the corneal tissue needed to correct vision.
- As no flap is created in the corneal tissue there is less healing required, which means greater comfort and faster recovery for the patient. Like other types of laser eye surgery, the procedure takes only a few minutes for each eye and in most cases, vision is at least 80% better after just a few hours. 100% vision improvement is usually achieved after a few weeks.
